Review for Project Night Night, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This makes over 10 years of volunteering with Project Night Night because the need never stops. It brings such joy to these homeless children to have this gift greet them when they enter a shelter. Volunteering is easy and makes such an incredible impact, but I also support Project Night Night with my wallet. It's an incredibly lean organization that really knows how to stretch a dollar. I'm proud of where my money and time go because I know what an impact both make on the lives of children.

We just finished a big project at our town summer camp collecting blankets, books and stuffed animals, and getting over 100 packages ready for needy kids in a nearby community. The teen counselors loved the assembly and the younger kids were so proud to bring in their donations. Project Night Night is a great organization to volunteer for, donate too, and receive packages from. The shelters are so grateful for these hand-assembled bags and it feels really good to also support literacy through distributing books.

Happy 10th anniversary to this amazing charity! I love being involved with Project Night Night because I can see the immediate impact of my time, talents and dollars. Now that I've established relationships with area shelters, they call throughout the year to ask for replenishments as new kids move in. And people in my community take the time to reach out to me when they have donations or want to help out with assembly. So, I know that these packages make a difference to the kids and to the volunteers that make them happen, and that is what has kept me involved.

I love Project night Night because it is a charity I can get kids involved in. I've held annual parties at my house with 40-50 kids and parents forming an assembly line creating Night Night bags and getting them off to nearby shelters. Many of the parents commented afterwards about how much fun it was to volunteer side by side with their kids and what a great chance it was to talk to their kids about helping other kids in need.

Plus as I've gotten to know the managers at shelters in NY, now several reach out to request more bags when they run low. It feels so good to know that these bags make a difference for the children, their parents entering shelters and even the shelter directors.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I'd find a way to source new blankets to reduce those costs since the blankets are new vs the books and stuffed animals which are mostly donated.
